Good info but...

I came away at the end of the book wondering how the author sold 80,000 books.

She provided common information that you'd find from a Google search, a few insider tips and some interviews, but I'm still not sure which factors contributed the most to the author's 80,000 book success.

And I guess the worst part is the book was full of long lists of arcane URLs read letter by letter, which drove me crazy. It is not really useful in an audiobook, and not something I enjoyed hearing, especially after the third or fourth URL read one after another.

I would suggest this "bad URL experience" could be improved by giving the listener one small URL which contains a free list of resources.

Also still curious which factors were the most important to your 80,000 book sales?

♥ Story ♥

I actually had already purchased this title in ebook format through the kindle store. It was and currently still is free. I was happy to see this come up through the AudiobookBoom program. I can now how the audio to go with my kindle edition! It's nice to have someone read to you, but you are going to want to pick up the ebook version too for all the references, links, as well as a convenient place to make and store notes.

How I Sold 80,000 Books is full of information that I will definitely be putting to use when I get the courage to publish my own stories! The meat and potatoes of this book focus on what the author refers to as 'the four Ps', Product, Place, Price and Promotion. Each 'P' is covered in detail as well as speaking of how they can and often do overlap.

There is sound advice and incites to be learned from this title for sure. I don't know how many books you will sell after you listen or read this title, but you will have a better understanding of what more you could be doing to help with your bottom line.

♥ Author ♥

This is my 1st read/listen by Alinka Rutkowska. This is her only audio title, but what a good one. She writes this non-fiction title in a somewhat informal manner as if she is speaking directly to you. It makes you feel as if she is giving you advice as opposed to teaching a class.
Alinka has 01 titles listed on Audible.

♥ Narrator(s) ♥

This is my 1st listen by Nikki Delgado. She has an accent, which I like, but can be a turn-off to others. She completely captures the author's informal style. The production speed seemed a bit too fast to me, but an edit to 0.90 in Audible's handy narration speed tool fixed it right up.
Nikki has 03 titles listed on Audible.
